. the president has record on manufacturing jobs since president clinton. and he noted as much during his dnc speech. >> and after a decade of decline, this country created over half a million manufacturing jobs in the last two and a half years. >> jennifer: now in polititfacts rated that statement by president clinton as true. mitt romney's own plan would cost 800,000 u.s. jobs according to the study for american progress. the corporate tax cuts would cost the u.s., according to that study, nearly $1 trillion. all right. now the third debate topic, and the third myth that is -- we are debunking here health you will hear this over and over again. you have heard it. the memo reads $716 billion will be raided from medicare to pay for obamacare. now this is the same raiding medicare lie that romney has been pushing since august. >> romney: the president's plan cuts medicare -- excuse me -- well let's see -- there we go. by $716 billion. cut. >> jennifer: polititfact, the fact checker in looking at that statement rated it mostly false because here is the truth. president obama
that president obama was kurt with hilary clinton. >> i don't think i am that bad. >> you are likable enough hilary. >> thank you. >> jennifer: there has been endless speculation about who is going to do better and of course the fact is they both have weaknesses when it comes to debating, and how do they get over those weaknesses. joining us tonight for more on how we can expect the to perform is alan schroeder. he is a professor of journalism at northeastern university and author of "presidential debates: 50 yours of high risk tv". love it! welcome inside "the war room" professor. >> thank you very much. i wanted to start by saying can i call you jennifer the way that sarah palin -- >> only if you wink when you do that. >> right. right. >> jennifer: you absolutely can, let's start with the candidate's weaknesses. you have said that president obama has several weaknesses. he may be overly cautious rusty, out of practice and testy. any of those fatal flaws? >> not necessarily unless they are magnified in a way that make them a fatal flaw. but related to all of that is this ide
clinton for president and in it, you wrote that the sex barrier is not taken as seriously as the racial one. do you still feel that way? >> well, you know, it depends on the situation. i think each person in this situation should be able to judge and that's especially true for women of color who may find themselves dealing with both in different situations. so there's no competition of tears here. they're both wrong. but obviously women are half of every group. so it's more extensive. it may or may not be more serious given the situation. but it's more extensive. >> jennifer: do you predict that we'll have a female president in the next four to eight years -- i shouldn't say four. maybe i would say four. 2016, is it possible? >> well, sure it is possible. i, frankly, did not think that hillary clinton could win not because of her but because of the fact that as long as most of us are -- men and women are raised primarily by women and not by men we associate female authority with childhood. and you could se
clinton. she is now a political and policy strategist at mvg and a senior fellow at the center for american progress. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank for having me. >> jennifer: it's great to have you here because i think we need some forward looking news. arizona and texas both reliably red right now, although in september, the president came within three points in one poll in arizona leading many to say, wow, could arizona be the next swing state in this election? do you think if not in this one, in the next one, that those two states would be in the swing state category. >> this motivated a great number of hispanics in arizona to register and vote, and they succeeded in recalling for the first time ever russell pierce who was the author of "1070." he made an even fort to get back on the ballot, and they defeated him again. there is currently an effort to not reelect sheriff arpaio. and then we have richard carmono running for the u.s. senate running as a democrat and he is giving -- >> jennifer: a run for his money. >> so if not this time, i'
bill clinton was much more able to relate to the common people than president bush. there have been cases where al gore was thought to have won in these instant poles against george bush. instead. the polls moved against gore after a couple of days. mitt romney accomplished what he needed to on wednesday night. i think it will probably move the numbers by maybe two points, 2.5 points in his direction. you have to worry if you're romney that maybe people have made their decision up but it's too late. he gave the best effort he could, where president obama did not have his strongest night. >> would you say it it was a game changer? it moved the direction he wants. is it the game changer he needs? >> the analogy i like to use as a sports fan romney was down by a field goal, sets himself up where if he scores again say with a bod job support on friday or there are two more debates then it looks like a very winnable election for him. i don't think it was going to be enough to move the polls into a romney lead or a tie by itself. we'll have to see. one pollle had romney down by five. he h
